"What we have here are the beginnings of something designed to enable robots to hunt down humans like a pack of dogs. Once the software is perfected we can reasonably anticipate that they will become autonomous and become armed.

Ok. So this is based on a possible scenario if robots went awol and started to take over and control/kill us in the most frightening way:
I am not a computer/robot geek by any means but isn't there some way a robot's signals could be jammed? A robot has to receive signals from someone no? Or do they just operate on their own programmed brain thingamajig? It should still be possible to jam a signal. Confuse it. Maybe even immobilize it. If too much damage is done then we risk using it for ourselves. Esp if parts are hard to find.
If this is going to happen then maybe we better educate ourselves on how to immobilize them at least. Even if we cannot figure out how to re-program it. We are bound to find someone out there who can help change their programming.
Do robots detect us by our body heat or what? Also, just like any enemy, what are robots weaknesses?

You do know that we already have software that can recognize a persons face from a great distance. A persons face, their body, their walk, etc.
You do know that we have drone hunter aircraft that is flown by remote control and auto pilot.
The software has been used with the drones as to alert the remote pilot to the presence of a known enemy.
How long will it be before it is all automated, if it isn't already being done?
